MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner has identified the three latest Milwaukee residents who died Thursday from coronavirus complications.

The three residents were identified as Carolyn Johnson, 65; Tommie Lee Loving, 69; and Callie Roundtree, 79.

The medical examiner said all three had serious underlying health conditions.

Authorities said Johnson was admitted to Froedtert Hospital's intensive care unit on Saturday after developing a cough and fever from coronavirus. Johnson’s sister told TMJ4 News that she will be remembered as a loving and caring person who would do anything to help her friends and family.

The medical examiner said Loving was taken to the Milwaukee VA Medical Center Wednesday after suffering from a fever, cough and weakness. He passed away Thursday night.

The medical examiner said the Milwaukee Fire Department responded to a 911 call on March 16 and transported Roundtree to Froedtert after she was found in an altered mental state.

There have been a total of 8 deaths in Milwaukee County, 14 in the state.
